Ferrari F40 and Porsche 911 GT2

Recommended Posts

I started these two models a few months back, but ran out of paint and took a break from them. I wasn't originally going to do a workbench thread since I'm pretty new to this and it won't be that interesting, but I'm bored and planning to get back to them soon so I thought what the heck, why not. :D

As my second and third models I decided that I definitely had to have an F40 in my collection, and I also wanted to build another Porsche. The 993 GT2 was perfect.

Guts of the F40

I plan on painting the body of the F40 white. I think it'll contrast nice with the black wheels and red seats.

As you can see below both cars are basically in opposite stages of their build :lol:

I apologize for the quality of the pictures, I'll post better ones once I've started on them again.

So this week I bought some more paint and got back to work on the GT2.

I bought a bright red this time instead of Italian red, and re-sprayed all the body's parts, and cage.

It matches what I'm trying to replicate much better.

The way the suspension is on this model creates A LOT of camber, and I find it quite funny that it shows in the instructions also :lol:

Track car doesn't surprise me with the amount of camber. Cars look great.
